My retirement funds are 40% taxable, and 60% tax-deferred (IRA etc). Does anyone have a formula, calculator, or even a rule-of-thumb to guide me in determining which I should take distribution from first for retirement living expenses. I'm 66, the IRA is of a size that would make minimum required distributions at age 70 probably taxable at 28% and some of social security benefits taxable too. My first instinct is to take the regular investments first and let the IRA grow tax-deferred; but it might be better to take from IRA now to keep required minimum distribution lower when that time comes. Any help?
